An SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate is a digital certificate that authenticates the identity of a website and encrypts information sent to the server using SSL technology. Encryption is the process of scrambling data into an undecipherable format that can only be returned to a readable format with the proper decryption key.
When your website has an active SSL certificate the application protocol changes from HTTP to HTTPS.
To see if your website has an SSL certificate, simply view your website’s URL to see whether it contains HTTP or HTTPS.
